Hilary Flora died October 9, one day before her 27th wedding anniversary. She is survived by

her husband Ross Greaves who was born in Norwalk Hospital the same weekend as Hilary, him

Friday and her Sunday, February 8, 1959. She is also survived by her daughter,

Kathryn Greaves and her beloved granddaughter, Sarina. She leaves her mother, Alexa Flora,

her sister, Westly Flora (Jay Balasa), and niece, Lily Flora. Sisters-in-law Debbie Flora, nieces

Olivia and Hailey Flora; Barbara Spurgeon (Kevin Spurgeon), nephews Russell and Brian; and

sister-in law Ann Greaves, and brothers-in-law, Rusty and Ben Greaves. She will also missed by her

Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins in North Carolina and Virginia; and her Aunt and Cousins in Idaho.

She is predeceased by her father, Sam Flora and brother, Christopher Flora. In addition to her

family, she leaves many friends - people she loved and who loved her. Hilary grew up in Weston

and graduated from UCONN in 1981, Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa. After college,

Hilary worked with her father for his Weston-based medical ad & communications firm. Soon

her editorial and writing skills were enlisted in New York, Greenwich, Ridgefield, Darien, and in

2003, Editorial Solutions for Envision Pharma in Fairfield, where she served as Engage

Editorial Divisional Lead, until her last hospitalization late September. Hilary faced her cancer

diagnosis earlier this year with the same courage and thoughtful attention to detail that she met

all obstacles. She said “it’s surreal,” but something she would handle. Hilary was a kind, gentle,

and generous woman with a strong will and a wonderful sense of humor. She loved cats (big

and small - she loved them all!) and incorporated them into nearly everything… she was also a

passionate reader, sharing favorite books with family and colleagues on a regular basis. Her

favorite times were spent with family and friends - and she especially enjoyed the time spent

with her granddaughter. She will be missed dearly. One of the last things she said to her

mother was, “You know, I have had a good life.”

A jubilee of Hilary’s life will be held at the Harding Funeral Home, 210 Post Road East, Westport,

Connecticut on October 23, 2019 between the hours of 5:00 and 8:00. All are welcome
